  • Unfortunately an absolute flop. You can invest far better the seventeen euros. Creepy, it's not even probably for children. From the castle itself, you can see virtually nothing as one goes through them in the dark. Creepy, this guide is maximum for people who are afraid of the dark. Could this concept from 0 to improve and that with really little effort, but apparently sells it by the description very well. I'm not sure if there was someone in our group (about 20 people), which liked it. I would recommend the Castle Forchtenstein during daylight hours.

  • Bottom line, we have paid 17,-for an extremely boring castle tour in the dark. There was not a single moment of tension in the ca 1.5 hours. We got some pictures (lit with a small flashlight) shown... that anyway not could be seen due to the lighting conditions. The whole thing was accompanied with bad "horror" stories... Too bad about the money. During the day, the EUR 17,-would have been better invested.

  • Beautiful castle. Normally there is a guided tour to visit the Castle including the collection of weapons, but there are also 16 rooms of the Museum which can be visited without a guide. Without a guide price is 11 euros per person. A little expensive for my taste.

  • Nice burg but the old wife with eye glass is not friendly. She talk not so loud ,the way when she finish to talk she never trying to say CONTINUE..sie tut einfach raus
  • Very nice old place, definitely take long tour including treasury and armory. Fotos are not restricted, but there's a fee of 2€. Worth visiting even with kids.
  • Very interesting. Special guided tours for kids. A nice look into the past of Austrias history.
  • Nice place with lots of ancient firearms, swords, paintings, helmets and armors... Take a tour, the last "room" is its main gem.
  • very nice castle
